Convened by UNESCO, the SDG - Education 2030 Steering Committee is a global and inclusive multi-stakeholder coordination mechanism for the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) of the Global Sustainable Development Agenda. Its chief objective is to support Member States and partners to achieve SDG4 and education-related targets of the global agenda through strategic guidance, monitoring, partnerships, advocacy and the harmonization of partner activities. The Committee is composed in majority of representatives from Member States, as well as from eight United Nations convening agencies, international and regional organizations, the Global Partnership for Education, OECD, civil society and teacher organizations

At this second meeting, to be held in Paris on 8 and 9 December 2016, the Steering Committee will focus on the follow-up to the recommendations of UNESCO’s flagship 2016 Global Education Monitoring report and the Report of the International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity; discuss a joint advocacy and communication strategy, including through the mobilization of a group of Champion Countries involved in the Secretary-General’s Global Education First Initiative; endorse thematic indicators and adopt a roadmap of activities for the next two years.
